About

CONFERENCE INFORMATION

HRI 2021 is the 16th annual conference for basic and applied human-robot interaction research. Researchers from across the world present their best work to HRI to exchange ideas about the theory, technology, data, and science furthering the state-of-the-art in human-robot interaction.

Each year, the HRI Conference highlights a particular area through a theme. The theme of HRI 2021 is “Bolder Human-Robot Interaction.”

The HRI conference is a highly selective annual international conference that aims to showcase the very best interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research in human-robot interaction with roots in and broad participation from communities that include but are not limited to robotics, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, human factors, design, and social and behavioral sciences.

CHANGES DUE TO COVID-19

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the conference is currently planned to be fully virtual.

We also acknowledge that many authors are concerned with how the pandemic has affected the feasibility of conducting in-person user studies. We want to stress that user studies are not the only possible means of assessing a research contribution. We encourage authors to consider the many other ways that contributions can be validated, and we will stress in the reviewing guidelines that, for many of the submitted works, user studies might not necessarily be the most appropriate, nor an indispensable method to demonstrate validity or provide valuable insights to the research community.
